### Anna University Syllabus

ST7009 WIND AND CYCLONE EFFECTS ON STRUCTURES Syllabus | Anna University Regulation 2013 ME Structural Engineering First Year Second Semester Syllabus.  Below is the Anna University 2013 Regulation Syllabus for 2nd Semester for Structural Engineering and Management, Textbooks, Reference books, Exam portions, Question Bank, Previous year question papers, Model question papers, Class notes, Important 2 marks, 8 marks, 16 marks topics.
It is applicable for all students admitted in the Academic year 2013-2014 onwards for all its Affiliated institutions in Tamil Nadu.

### OBJECTIVES:

 To study the concept of wind and cyclone effects for the analysis and design of structures.

### UNIT I INTRODUCTION 9

Introduction, Types of wind – Characteristics of wind – Wind velocity, Method of measurement, variation of speed with height, shape factor, aspect ratio, drag effects - Dynamic nature of wind – Pressure and suctions - Spectral studies, Gust factor.

### UNIT II WIND TUNNEL STUDIES 9

Wind Tunnel Studies, Types of tunnels, - Prediction of acceleration – Load combination factors – Wind tunnel data analysis – Calculation of Period and damping value for wind design - Modeling requirements, Aero dynamic and Aero-elastic models.

### UNIT III EFFECT OF WIND ON STRUCTURES 9

Classification of structures – Rigid and Flexible – Effect of wind on structures - Static and dynamic effects on Tall buildings – Chimneys.

### UNIT IV DESIGN OF SPECIAL STRUCTURES 9

Design of Structures for wind loading – as per IS, ASCE and NBC code provisions – design of Tall Buildings – Chimneys – Transmission towers – Industrial sheds.

### UNIT V CYCLONE EFFECTS 9

Cyclone effect on – low rise structures – sloped roof structures - Tall buildings. Effect of cyclone on claddings – design of cladding – use of code provisions in cladding design – Analytical procedure and modeling of cladding.
TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

### OUTCOMES:

 On completion of this course, students will be able to design high rise structures subjected wind load, even structures exposed to cyclone.
 Students will be conversant with various code provisions for the design of structures for wind load.
